14 people were taken to the hospital with symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning at a home in san francisco last night after the alarm went off. doctors found co2 in their bloodstreams but testing found no carbon monoxide leak in the house. officials say elevated levels of carbon monoxide can sometimes show up in blood tests for smokers and they believe that cigarettes set off the smoke alarm. well we are -- on the verge of getting soaked. we'll find out when it will hit us. >> it is not here yet. it was fog. right now the cbs high def doppler is dry but after a dry day on monday this may be the wettest week in the bay area in more than a year. there is a pretty significant setup. let me explain it to you. first off, tropical moisture is not uncommon and sitting out in the pacific. there is a ploom of tropical moisture from hawaii about 500 miles off shore. what is significant is that low pressure going in the perfect
6:08pm
spot to take that tropical moisture and fire it right toward the bay area and then it will stick for several days. so there is the potential for heavy rainfall starting on wednesday. so we still have about 36 more hours. first wave of rainfall that moves through will likely bring rainfall totals in the north bay up to 2 inches and that is the first of several waves of low pressure to move through. so bottom line, heavy rainfall moving through the bay area later on this week. i'll time it out for you with your full seven-day forecast coming up in 10 minutes. i was just sitting there looking down at my phone and then somebody grabbed it. >> set up and take -- fed up and taking a stand. the tact eck in a bay area neighborhood in response to a rash of thefts. fears that development will bring danger to the neighborhood. the plan for a hunk of sand near the site of this mudslide and why there is so much concern over a flower. >> it is important that we keep

6:13pm
like a phone wallet combo. i started chasing after them. but then i realized there was two of them and so i was like, what am i going to do? >> reporter: that was enough for her boss and co-workers at this beauty store nearby. they put up this sign warning customers, thieves are getting more aggressive, grabbing phones easily but sometimes using pepper spray, even a gun to steal the phones. especially from women who are distracted by their phones. >> this used to be a safe neighborhood. >> it usually is. it is just i feel like people take advantage of that and they take advantage of feeling so safe and so they just -- you let your guard down. >> reporter: it was just last year when a taxi cab surveillance camera caught this woman walking in the same neighborhood. watch the man next to her, in seconds he grabs her phone and runs off. it is not too hard to do. >> do you know how easy it is to grab it like this. >> susie was standing around with the iphone in her hand. >> you forget to look around and see what is going on. >> reporter: police say on the black market a thief can get
6:14pm
$100 for a stolenich phone. shopping mall kiosks are even more convenient. a good iphone can much $160. one man recently dumped a bunch of them here at the westfield mall in downtown san francisco. john tucker saw him. >> he had probably about five or six phones and he was just putting them in there, just like they were quarters in a candy machine, and getting money for them. and so at one point he shook his jacket to make sure he didn't have any more phones on him. >> police say no matter what neighborhood you are in, if you are going to put the cell phone to your ear and walk down the street, you might as well be waving around a $100 bill because that's what thieves see. and in the first eight months of this year, there were 2300 street robberies and half of them for cell phones. >> wow. an easy haul it sounds like. good advice, linda. thank you. two bay area officials are getting a boost to the six-
6:15pm
figure salorys -- salerys. mike sugarman on keeping the top people from leaving town and why it is worth it. >> this is a story you want to e-mail to your boss right now. >> it is important that we keep talented executives in our city. >> reporter: so san leandro city manager chris zapata, not even on the job a year, made sure his two got raises by cutting his salary. >> i think it is worth it from the standpoint of the community and more important than money. >> reporter: the assistant city marshall who didn't want to go on camera, will get a $10,000 range because the city manager cut his salery by $20,000. they get bumped up and he will get backed back $20,000. >> my children are grown.
6:16pm
my daughter's wedding is paid for and so i believe it is a small gesture. >> i talked to the leader of the largest union of city workers in san leandro by phone and she said this is a feel- good story, but what about us? we haven't had a raise in five years? we're going into negotiation and you're pleading poverty and now the top salaries in the city are going up? >> i understand these are difficult financial times we find ourselves in but i understand the realities of the market. >> reporter: and good city administrators and police chiefs are hot, hot, hot, he said. >> i think it is much more common than people think. >> this professor said there are all kinds of bosses. >> some people in positions of power have motivations that are directed toward themselves and some people in positions of power have motivations that are directed toward the good of the whole and the community. >> reporter: and when you do e- mail this story to your boss,
6:17pm
ask him, which one are you? mike sugarman, cbs 5. >> i'm not going to ask that? >> no. good news about the storm is we don't have to water our plants -- right now. >> and if you haven't put up the holiday or christmas decorations, get outside -- tonight is late, but do it tomorrow. because we are looking at a washout through the weekend. here is a peek outside. the weather issue as issued -- the weather agency has issued a warning. the potential is there for several days with heavy rainfall, especially in the foothills because the moisture slams into the mountain and that's where we see the highest rainfall totalsch that is a beautiful monday night. embarcadero lit up for the holidays. san francisco downtown hit 58 and did half moon bay. napa 65. concord 63 degrees. cbs 5 high def doppler dry for now. i do believe by this time tomorrow night we'll see rain building off shore with rain arriving after midnight and
6:18pm
into wednesday morning. so why are we talking about so much rain? because we get fronts moving through and rain moving through. this is reality. what we don't see that often is this river of moisture. we call it the pineapple express because of its origin, down toward hawaii. where it sets up shop and when it sets up shop, over one spot and then doesn't move, that becomes a problem. and it may become a problem for us later on this week. low pressure is building from the gulf of alaska. when these two come together, all of this moisture hitting the wall in the atmosphere and then getting shoved to the east, guess where it will end up. all indications are that it will end up in northern california and that could be a problem with too much rain. so enjoy the dry tomorrow, because after tomorrow we'll be wet for a while, perhaps up to a week. san francisco tomorrow 62. livermore 65. put up lights in san jose, partly sunny tomorrow 64 degrees. i don't think we'll see as much fog tomorrow as we did this morning and it was widespread around the bay. redwood city, high of 64. rain begins on wednesday. a little bit of a break on
6:19pm
thursday with scattered showers and then the heavy stuff moves in friday, saturday, sunday and even the top of next week. it looks like we're going to be wet and wet for a while and it starts on wednesday morning. so enjoy the dry while we have it. that is your cbs 5 forecast. >> thank you, paul. bay area sand dunes at the center of a development dispute. why so much of the fighting is over a flower. and why more workers at an area airport could be carrying guns on runway. ,,,, ,,

6:34pm
at $7,000 in tuition per year, that would generate an additional $3.5 million, money to hire teachers. >> we would be able to offer more courses than we can right now and we'll be dependent less on the state economy to be able to sustain ourselves. >> reporter: the campus has plenty of room to grow. and a bond measure was just passed that could build new facilities. but the president of the faculty is skeptical the money would cover all expenses and worries that the higher paying foreign students would be at the front of the line when the u.c. begins to select transfer students. all of this has the locals on campus feeling a bit unappreciated. >> life is not, fair. life is not fair. but it kind of seems like they are chasing the dollar rather than the education. >> reporter: but these days dollars and education cannot be separated. it is an economics lesson everyone is learning, even those who can't get into the
